“Why” Questions

As we all try to understand the connections of a volatile global economy, here are some articles from outside sources that I found interesting. I thought of some “Why” questions that have been on my mind and found writers who do a nice job of providing commentary:

Why you might need to rethink your retirement math? (USA Today)

Why are bond yields around the world low, even negative? (Ed Yardeni)
